School Closure Update
Friday, March 13, 2020
Keep Learning @ WCPS!
WCPS is pleased to provide students and families access to a wide variety of digital and downloadable resources to continue learning. Students have access to their textbooks, subscription content, standardized apps, interactive e-books, and other projects at Keep Learning @ WCPS.
These learning resources serve as an extension to the classroom and enhance the learning experiences of the student. Activities will not be collected or graded.
For our families without internet access and for our youngest learners who have not been assigned technology, books and other supplemental resources were provided at school on Friday, March 13 to support reading.
In addition, students may continue to work on classroom assignments provided by teachers prior to school closures.
We encourage you to take this opportunity to explore our extensive digital library and to read!
Activities and Events Cancelled
All athletic, extra-curricular, and inter-curricular events are cancelled during the emergency closure. This means formal and informal choral, band, orchestra, and theater practices and assessments, as well as formal and informal athletic practices and competitions will not and can not be held through Sunday, March 29.
The final WCPS-sanctioned event will be the administration of the SAT at Williamsport High and South High on Saturday, March 14. Staff will disinfect and sanitize the rooms in advance of student arrival.
